New this month Continuity mistake: As the taxi Hedley is in approaches Grauman's Chinese Theater, watch the movie title "Blazing Saddles" on the marquees. It moves slightly as the camera pans to keep the taxi in frame. Also, Hedley's suit and face are spotless, despite entering the taxi covered in whipped cream. And, it was afternoon when Lamarr got the cab, but dark at the theater. The studio and theater are only four miles apart.

Continuity mistake: When Mongo first comes into town and the man on the horse says "You can't park that animal here," Mongo punches the horse and its rider, and the horse falls. Before the cut to the close up of the man (obviously the stunt double), his head is facing toward the horse's head. After the cut to the close up of the man, his body is facing the opposite direction.

Continuity mistake: When Mongo gets the "candygram", he closes his eyes BEFORE it explodes in his face. True, that is necessary for safety, but if he would have tilted his head just a little more, his hat would have blocked the view of his eyes.

Continuity mistake: The scene where the gang stampedes through Rockridge, a thug on horseback lassos a man who is dragged down with the rope slipping down around his feet. As he's dragged foot first through the mud, he says "Well, that's the end of this suit" only now, the rope is up around his chest and under his arms and he's being pulled in a head first direction.

Continuity mistake: When Mongo is sniffing Taggert's arm, his hat has been knocked down to below his eyes. When the shot changes, the hat is now lifted up above his eyebrows, even though both his hands are still on Taggert.

New this month Suggested correction: If you re-watch the scene, yes the Waco Kid shaves and wipes his face. However, when Bart kicks his chair, and both jump up, you see a spot of shaving cream on Jim's face about mid-cheek, and a spot just under his side-burn.

New this month Suggested correction: It is true that the horse suddenly appears, but Jim is reclined on hay bales, not boxes.

For future reference, this is what the "change the entry's wording" option is for.

This entry is about the sudden appearance of a horse. It has nothing to do with The Waco Kid reclining on boxes nor does the entry say he was reclining on boxes. It says that he's reclining on bales of hay.

It did say bales of hay - I've left the correction and "change wording" comment online for a bit for informational purposes.

Quotes

Jim: Well, it got so that every piss-ant prairie punk who thought he could shoot a gun would ride into town to try out the Waco Kid. I must have killed more men than Cecil B. DeMille. It got pretty gritty. I started to hear the word "draw" in my sleep. Then one day, I was just walking down the street when I heard a voice behind me say, "Reach for it, mister!" I spun around... And there I was, face-to-face with a six-year old kid. Well, I just threw my guns down and walked away. Little bastard shot me in the ass. So I limped to the nearest saloon, crawled inside a whiskey bottle, and I've been there ever since.

Trivia
